Many people aged between 11 and 30 suffer from acne, which makes it the most widespread skin disease globally. Though acne isn’t deadly, it adversely affects our self-esteem and social life by leaving scars on the skin. Fortunately, modern medicine provides multiple ways of treating acne. If you’ve tried different strategies and nothing seems to work, consider Dermapen at Perfect Skin Center.
What is Dermapen?
Dermapen is a tiny, pen-shaped device that is used to correct several skin problems and deliver rejuvenated skin. Thousands of dermatologists and skin care experts use the device to treat common skin issues such as wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, fine lines, and acne scars. To help you appreciate the device, let’s look at how acne scars form.
Acne Scar Formation
Acne scars develop as a result of poor, insufficient or excessive collagen production. When an acne lesion bursts, its contents spill to nearby tissues, causing permanent damages. In response, the body produces collagen fibers to replace the dead skin cells at the injured part. Sometimes, the new collagen fibers differ from the original fibers in both shape and alignment, which results in the development of acne scars.
How Dermapen Works
When acne develops, the body regards that part of the skin as repaired despite looking unattractive. Dermapen creates tiny micro-channels at that part to get the attention of the body and trigger it to generate collagen for repairing it again.
Unlike acne that damages skin tissue on various levels, severities and depths, Dermapen “damages” the skin equally in depth, size, and shape. This results in improved collagen formation, which encourages skin rejuvenation.
The number of sessions needed to treat acne scars varies from one person to another since body chemistry, skin types and genetics vary widely. As such, we strongly recommend consulting a professional before undertaking any skin care treatment, including microneedling with Dermapen.
